Want to spend even more time at Rainbow Cafe? Once a month we open on a Saturday afternoon for YOUTH EMPOWERMENT SATURDAY (or YES)! Friday nights are for socializing with friends, spontaneous karaoke competitions, or just eating pizza rolls... YES is an opportunity for youth and volunteers to engage in a more structured program with a specific issue or goal in mind. Activities that foster leadership, creativity, and teamwork are stressed. This month we'll be discussing and dissecting gender! Saturday February 24! 12pm-4:30pm! At Rainbow Cafe!
There is a board meeting tonight at Rainbow Cafe! Youth are always invited to attend and contribute their thoughts about RC and learn more about how our organization runs. It is 5:15 to 7:00pm. RC opens at 6 now, so if you do not want to attend the meeting, please be respectful and as quiet as possible when entering the space. Thank you so much! HAPPY FRIDAY!
